Joaquin Phoenix stars as an American soldier stationed in Germany in 1989 at the time when the Berlin Wall is about to fall, and the world is about to be made safe for the new world order. But outside of Stuttgart, West Germany, at Theodore Roosevelt Army Base, Specialist Ray Elwood of the 317th Supply Battalion couldn’t care less about the wall. He was trained to fight and ever since he’s been stationed at the base he’s been bored from a lack of action. His only solution is to create some for his own. Ray begins battling his boredom by giving his attention to black market activities. He cooks and sells heroin to a score of corrupt drug dealing MPs and sells weapons to the highest bidder. Ray insures all this goes through smoothly by leading a double-life as a good soldier and confidant to his commanding officer Colonel Berman, enabling him to seep his own activities into Army protocol. All this happens right under Berman’s nose as well as wife having an affair with Elwood. When a new top sergeant, Robert Lee arrives, with the avowed intention of cleaning the base up, Elwood thinks the new blood is nothing he can't handle, especially after he lays eyes on the top's daughter, rebellious Robyn. But that was before he figured in the $5 million in stolen arms that just landed on his lap, Berman's jealous wife, an insane Turkish drug dealer, and, of course, the resulting lust, betrayal, and murder. This movie is rated R for violence, language, drug content and some sexual scenes.
